OPTFA meets at UA on Oct. 23
Please join us for tomorrow’s meeting of the Ohio Part-Time Faculty Association at noon, Oct. 23, in Room 301 of the Student Union on the University of Akron campus.
The Ohio Part-time Faculty Association advocates for the interests of part-time faculty members in institutions of higher learning in the state of Ohio. And we will meet at UA tomorrow to listen to your concerns and advocate for you.
On the agenda are:
- UA’s new rule that caps the number of hours each adjunct can work outside the classroom at 2 hours credit hour. The limit helps UA avoid providing health benefits under the provisions of the Affordable Care Act. How is the new limit affecting you?
- UA’s timekeeping procedures. Are they efficient and effective? What are your concerns?
- FOR PROFIT, the solo play that will be performed FREE at UA on Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. in the Student Union Theater as part of national Campus Equity Week. It takes a poignant but humorous look at student debt and will be followed by a panel discussion that includes an adjunct faculty member. This is a great opportunity for you and your students to learn and speak out about equity issues in higher education.
- The Ohio Higher Education Campus Equity Week Summit, Oct. 26 in Columbus, a free event that is part of national Campus Equity Week. You are invited to join us in planning advocacy to improve higher ed on your campus and in our state.
